Junior League of New Orleans

Freret 5K

Saturday, October 17, 2015

Promote health, fitness, and our community while supporting an organization striving to Advance the Wellbeing of Women. The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) invites you to the 3rd Annual Freret 5K presented by Ochsner Baptist on Saturday, October 17, 2015.

Beginning and ending at JLNO’s Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Shop, this 5K and half-mile fun run:

  • showcases a vibrant economic corridor,
  • promotes family fitness, and
  • raises funds for JLNO’s community projects and volunteer efforts.

JLNO has been a member of the Freret community for 55 years with its Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store and believes this exciting event will further encourage the health and wellness of the City’s citizens and businesses.

The Freret 5K is a family friendly event that encourages a sense of community among all ages and enables the area’s residents and business owners to share their neighborhood. In 2014, registration fees from over 410 participants, along with the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers, combined to raise over $21,000 for JLNO's community projects and sponsor 30 youth runners.  This money combines with 45,000 hours of direct volunteer service by JLNO members to impact the lives of those in Metropolitan New Orleans.
